"It's an abnormal life."

Those are the words Adam McPhee borrowed from his now ex-senior coach Ross Lyon to describe what being an AFL footballer entails.

Adam McPhee added the vital ingredients of strength and experience to Freo’s formidable backline in 2012.

He played a blinder in the club’s Elimination Final win over Geelong, taking 11 marks, many of which were kicked from the boot of the opposition.

He finished fourth at Freo per game for marks (5.9), effective kicks (8.9) and rebound 50s (2.6), and should again be called upon to play a big part in the club’s 2013 campaign.

 

Season by Season

Season by Season

McPhee didn’t have quite the impact he had in his first season back at the club in 2010. He played his 200th AFL game in round 19 but the hard-at-it utility only managed 12 appearances in an injury-interrupted year. He didn’t play between rounds 9-15 and, like many of his underdone teammates this season, struggled to make an impact when he returned. With a host of youngsters eager to push into the senior side, McPhee will be hoping for a big 2012 to reconsolidate himself in the Freo team.

After moving to Freo from Essendon in 2010, McPhee struggled with form early on in the year, but, after finding his niche as a run-with player, he became an integral member of the side. Perhaps his best effort of the season was his tagging job on 2010 Brownlow Medallist Chris Judd in the round 13 win over Carlton at Etihad Stadium. McPhee’s strength and hardness will be again be called upon next season.
